Businesses rely on the Internet, so any downtime means increased risk of financial loss and damage to a company’s reputation. Web system downtime can often be attributed to DNS outages which can be caused by many internal and external threats and vulnerabilities, including, network outages, data centre outages, configuration errors or distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.
While some businesses choose to manage DNS internally, doing it well requires a level of cost and resources, infrastructure and in-house expertise that are beyond the reach of most companies. Additionally, research* indicates that websites with internally managed DNS are more likely to suffer from downtime than sites where DNS is managed externally.
With Verisign’s secure, cloud-based DNS hosting, businesses can count on improved performance, uptime and cost savings over in-house management.
